Peanut oil
Peanut oil nutrition facts

  • Peanut oil is high in energy; 100 g oil provides 884 calories.
  • It is one of the cooking oils with a high smoke point; 450 °F. The property can be employed in setting oil temperatures while deep-frying food items.
  • Peanut oil has very good lipid profile. It has saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated (SFA: MUFA: PUFA= 18: 49: 33) fats in healthy proportions.
  • It is one of the stable cooking oils; having a long shelf life
Benefits of Peanut Oil
  • Wonderfully pleasant, sweet-flavored peanut oil is low in saturated fats, free from cholesterol, contains essential fatty acid ( linoleic acid (omega-6)) making it as one of the healthiest cooking oils
  • Peanut oil is high in calories. Its high-calorie value is because of fatty acids. Nonetheless, the oil is especially rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) like oleic acid (18:1) that helps to lower LDL or "bad cholesterol" and increases HDL or "good cholesterol" in the blood. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet that is enriched with monounsaturated fatty acids help to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favoring healthy blood lipid profile
  • Peanut oil contains resveratrol, a polyphenol antioxidant, which has been found to have protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease, and viral/fungal infections
  • Peanut oil contains valuable amounts of anti-oxidant Vitamin E. 100 g fresh oil has 15.69 mg of alpha-tocopherol and 15.91 mg of gamma-tocopherol. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals
  • In addition to being a vegetable source, peanut oil is also an ideal choice for deep-frying because it can be heated to a higher temperature (smoke point -450 °F). This results in lower oil retention in the fried foods
Coconut Oil
Organic Coconut Oil is rich in vitamins and minerals and especially rich (60%+) in important fatty acids, the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).  It has been used by Asian and Pacific populations both as a source of dietary oil and in their traditional medical practices.  Praised for its many and various healing properties, to a Pacific Islander, Coconut Oil is believed to be the cure of all illnesses and is so highly valued they refer to the coconut palm as “The Tree of Life.”  Western modern science has only recently begun to uncover and understand the miracle healing value of the coconut.

Coconut Oil has been mistakenly labeled as unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content.  However, modern science has now refuted these earlier claims and instead, is praising the health benefits with some even stating it as the “healthiest oil on earth.”

All fats and oils are composed of molecules called fatty acids which are made of long chains of carbon atoms with hydrogen atoms attached.  All fatty acids are classified as either short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), or long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) and our bodies metabolize each of these fatty acids differently.  

About 98-100% of fats and oils in our American diets (including those in meat, milk, eggs and most all vegetable oils) are comprised of LCFA.  But Coconut Oil is comprised of more than 60% MCFA, also known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs).  MCFA do not have the adverse effects found in LCFA but instead have many health benefits, including helping to protect against heart disease, lowering the risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease as well as slightly lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and slightly raising HDL (good cholesterol).
